Error: libtool - while compiling an MPI program

I'm using

OpenSuse Leap
and I installed
openMPI
thought YaST. Running a
which mpirun
command I get
/usr/lib64/mpi/gcc/openmpi/bin/mpirun
and running
which mpicc
i get
/usr/bin/mpicc
.

How to make sure first that OpenMPI is correctly installed?

Second, I have a simple hello world I am process X program and running
mpicc hello.c
I get this output


gcc: error: libtool:: No such file or directory

gcc: error: link:: No

such file or directory mpicc: No such file or directory


Also, I installed
Eclipse for Parallel Application
and used a build-in example and it gives me this output at build


make all

Building target: hello

Invoking: GCC C Linker

mpicc -o "hello" ./src/hello.o

gcc: error: libtool:: No such file or directory

gcc: error: link:: No such file or directory

makefile:30: recipe for target 'hello' failed

mpicc: No such file or directory

make: *** [hello] Error 1


I checked YaST and libtool is installed.

Answer

This answer comes at a time too late. I recently had the same issue. Hence anyone who comes here for an answer, this was how I got it working.

Please note: this is an isolated situation who gets similar error

gcc: error: libtool:: No such file or directory

gcc: error: link:: No such file or directory

mpicc: No such file or directory

First try to check the solution suggested by LPs. It will try to update your libtool autoconf and automake. If you get nothing to do:

sudo zypper in automake autoconf libtool
root's password:
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
'libtool' is already installed.
No update candidate for 'libtool-2.4.2-15.2.2.x86_64'. The highest available version is already installed.
'autoconf' is already installed.
No update candidate for 'autoconf-2.69-10.1.2.noarch'. The highest available version is already installed.
'automake' is already installed.
No update candidate for 'automake-1.13.4-5.1.2.noarch'. The highest available version is already installed.
Resolving package dependencies...

Nothing to do.

Then explicitly add your OpemMPI path variable.

export PATH=/usr/lib64/mpi/gcc/openmpi/bin:$PATH

This worked for me. Good luck!
